Fort's Huachuca Canyon now open to the public | Environment
Starting last week, Huachuca Canyon was opened to the public, during daylight hours only.
A new sign at the entrance to Huachuca Canyon warns visitors they are about to enter bear country and provides tips on how to avoid bears and what to do if they encounter one. In order for base personnel to do their best to ensure the safety of personnel in the canyon, they ask that anyone planning to visit Huachuca Canyon, inform them first.
Before entering the canyon, all personnel must sign in at the Military Police Station, located in Bldg. 22336 on Christy Ave., and sign out upon departure. Visitors should be prepared to provide vehicle and contact information. This new requirement applies to Huachuca Canyon only.
Fort Huachuca is a great place for outdoor recreation and enjoying the flora and fauna of southeastern Arizona's sky island habitat. The hope is this new procedure allows all creatures to enjoy the habitat equally without causing each other harm.
